Just 80km north of Bangkok is the ancient city of Ayutthaya. Manageable as a day trip from Bangkok or as a stopover for those venturing further north, Ayutthaya offers valuable insight to the history of Thailand and a chance to see the impressive stonemasonry of bygone days.
While most visitors venture to Ayutthaya’s World Heritage Historical Park and the well-known ruins, the ancient city has so much more to offer. Working with a local partner in Ayutthaya, who designs each of their tours to respect the integrity of the local environment while co-operating with communities to help preserve culture and tradition, Destination Asia Thailand’s new tour ‘Another side of Ayutthaya’ allows guests to witness different aspects of local life in Ayutthaya.
Discover hidden corners of Ayutthaya while travelling by local samlors (bicycle rickshaws), long-tail boat, and on foot. Explore its local lesser-known temples and museums before wandering through one of the city’s most important traditional markets. Visit a local handicraft community and learn to weave replicas of fish, part of a well-known local tradition in Thailand and a unique souvenir from this old city. After an enjoyable walk, it’s time for a well-deserved foot massage by blind masseuses.
